Are you ready to take the next step in your career?

If you are mid-career, Moving on Up 2023 is the essential conference to give you a motivation boost, help you identify areas for progress, develop your networks and discover how you can demonstrate your impact in the sector. 

This event is for you if you work in any area of the museum sector, or are employed in a different sector looking to bring your skills and experience to a museum or heritage setting. It gives you the confidence, contacts and ideas to think innovatively and creatively about how you can progress your career and be a changemaker in the sector.
